What is 3G?
a network to be classified as 3G, it needs to meet certain preset technical
standards for reliability and speed. At the beginning, around 2003, the
networks were required to have speeds of at least 200 kilobits per second.
3G speeds of today are much faster than the initial 200 kbps.
rise to demand for even faster data speeds led to the evolution of generations
Ø 5G will provide greater network stability to ensure
that business-critical mobile functions do not go offline. It will also provide
necessary speed to give employees a fully equipped virtual office almost
anywhere. If broadband services do not experience significant uplifts in speed,
5G might even prove to be a cost-effective alternative to fixed-line services
in ten years’ time.
is expected that the download time for an eight gigabyte HD movie will be just
six seconds, compared with seven minutes over 4G and over an hour with 3G.
Ø With speeds of up to 100
gigabits per second, 5G will be as much as 1,000 times faster than 4G,
the latest iteration of mobile data technology. … 3G does not
have the capacity to cope with modern mobile working.5G
essentially works the same way as 3G, but with faster internet connection and
CRITERIAS TO BE MET TO QUALIFY AS A 5G NETWORK
the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA), in order to qualify as a
5G network, it should meet most of the following eight criteria;
1 to 10Gbps connections
1 millisecond end-to-end round trip
1000x bandwidth per unit area
10 to 100x number of connected
(Perception of) 99.999 percent
(Perception of) 100 percent coverage
90% reduction in network energy
Up to ten-year battery life for low
power, machine-type devices
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 3G AND 5G TECHNOLOGY
3G is a digital, supported data
It is circuit switched
3.5G faster data, added through always-on / packet data
Data rates of 2Mbps-tens of Mbps
5G is not yet completely defined
It is 1000 times faster than 3G.
It is likely to be in use by the year 2020
Its an extension of 4G but with higher data rates.It
also supports data for Internet of Things
Data rates of “1Gbps” are proposed
